Hey folks, been posting on here latley as i feel stuck in a rutt and the docs don't seem to have much understanding.. Anyway
32 female usually full of energy and happy bubbly lass. Always suffered anxity since young age. Always just put up with it until ocd negative thoughts last year or so. Anyway docs put me on waiting list for cbt and got me to try mirtazapine. Stayed on 15 from starting as anything more I can't seem to function..
So I was feeling groggy every morning like I had flu and waking up feeling hung over. I don't drink or smoke am into sports. Well usually am. Now I struggle to grt out of bed most daYs aS I dread the day a head latley. Anyway I take my mirtazapine at ngt usually calm anyway as it seems I mainly suffer morning anxity and I feel fine in the evening most night and perfect at ngt. I've tried to ween off mirt in Dec took 3 months to get half way and ir floored me. Anxity attacks constant all day every day. Docs advised go back to 15 till my cbt.
So I did 3 weeks ago nearly.. So it has settled a little. But now I cAnT seem to sleep, I'm angry and frustrated late at night. Little teary too. Also often brain zaps Tring to sleep, adrenaline rushes all the time, feel like headed and get the shakes regular, my tummy is all over latly. I wake up awful but need 10 hours sleep it seems. Concentrstion is poor, feel foggy headed and zero motivation. I feel my moods now low and dont want to be around people as am always worrying about anxity. Seem to of developed heath anxity from all the side effects and hassle from these tablets wd. I do feel stronger latly but today I have again constant adrenaline rushes and feel awful. Had anxity attack but tried diaphragmic breathing it helped calm me but still Feel some anxity and racey thought just can't relax
Yesterday I had random muscle spasms and twiches that Scared Me but tried to ignore it. All these issues didn't happen prrior to these tablets apart from usual anxity and ocd thoughts thst cbt was helping with.
I feel these tabelts are not doing much just taking away abit morning anxity and butterflies. I don't like leaving my room or house move days. This just isn't me at all my head goes into over drive it's hard to see it as onky anxity a little emotion.
Im scared to try reduce or stop these mirtazapine with the hassle of the last time. I feel stuck and out of answers. I'm awaiting cbt but also learning stuff my self. I am usually so positive but I feel my life's done for like I really do.
Not wanting to take tabelts but I have no option at the moment.
Anyone any similar experience with mirtazapine?
Thanks all and keep pushing
